PAWTUCKET â€” School officials say they are working to eradicate a pesky mice problem that has recently erupted at the Agnes Little Elementary School.
The Times received several phone calls last week from unidentified individuals saying their children had reported seeing mice at the schoolâ€”some dead and others aliveâ€”and were concerned about health and safety issues. Two of the callers said that besides seeing the rodents running around the school, there was a foul odor, apparently from dead mice, and that there were apparent mice droppings on the floors, desks, and other surfaces.
The Division II football playoffs usually provide the most interesting competition every season when Rhode Island teams begin competing for Super Bowl berths.
D-II holds a big advantage over the other three divisions because it is the stateâ€™s largest league (16 teams). It invites eight teams to the playoffs instead of the four we find in other divisions. Its quarterfinals are held in the second week of November while the regular season is still going on elsewhere.
